The pronunciation of the french word "oeuf" is very bad, it must be : /œf/

It's been like this for 6 years with the woman's audio and 2 years with the man's. Let's be patient, a miracle is always possible.

Why is it just "maman" and not "une maman" or "la maman"m

"Mom's eating an egg." should also be accepted

Duo does not recognize the contraction of "is" with a noun. Basically, it's the result of slurred speech but when writing, use "Mom is".

What's wrong with "Mom eats an egg." ? It's not accepted.

Nothing, this is correct and accepted (typo?).

I don't think there was a typo. I looked at it closely to be sure. But of course there is no going back! Thanks for your input.
